VIDEO: How To Blow Dry Your Hair Straight

I decided to make a video about how you can straighten your own hair. I’ve been doing my own hair since I was 13 years old and I used to be the girl all my friends came to while in college before a night out on the town.

This video will show you how to straighten your own hair with a few key tips… but there’s a little problem. The first portion is a bit blurry, so you have to forgive me for that – it clears up after about a minute, but UGH I was so angry when I saw that!!!

Here are some of the tips for blow drying your hair straight that can be found on this video:

  • Let your hair dry a bit before you get started styling. You will spend less time if you give yourself 10 minutes or so to air dry.
  • Always use a heat serum and don’t apply it on your roots.
  • Section off your hair into segments.

The rest is in the video!!

    The blowdryer is a T3 and it comes with the attachment :

    The brush is just an over-sized round brush but it’s not my preference. My real brush looks more like this: but I flipping lost it!

    That used to work for me too, but as i’ve gotten older, my hair has changed quite a bit. I now have to flat iron it if I want pin straight hair. Otherwise, I get really frizzy.

    So awesome & simply!

    I use one large clip to pin the top but TWO would be so much better and hurt my head less.

    I never pin back the bottom…duh!

    I always flat iron my hair because blow drying it straight is such a challenge. You make it look so easy!
    Thank you!
